My stay in Astoria with Ozkan was great ! The room is perfectly located, only 5 min to the subway that takes you straight into Manhattan in 20min. There is everything you need in the neighborhood (food, laundry, pharmacy, gym...) and not more that 5 min away!
The room is very nice, clean and comfortable. The bathroom and the kitchen are great too. So if you come to NY for 3 days or 3 months, this is the place to stay !
Specially as Ozkan and Dorota are amazing hosts, nice, friendly and always here to help as soon as they can. Therefore I would highly recommend staying in any of the rooms that they have available on airbnb.
Ozkan and Dorotha are lovely hosts.
The flat is very centrally located on 30th ave, and easy to get to the underground.
Several restaurants, bars and grocery stores in very nearby vicinity.
Both hosts will go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The room I stayed in is spacious, the bed is great, and it is a nice light and bright room, with large windows that open straight onto a terrace.
As the room is at the back, there is no (or very very little) street noise to be heard.
There is a single, shared bathroom but the hosts are quick to be considerate of your "schedule" so there isn't any disruption to anyone's routine.
Most importantly, these are two hosts who really enjoy meeting new people and take great pride in hosting. That alone makes it a win.
This room is great! the bed is amazing, great bright space during the day, very clean and organized. Really short walk to the metro, Astoria is a great neighbourhood, lots of great food, bars and coffee shops around. I recommend this place 100%. Oskan is a great host, was very helpful and available any time for anything. The guy makes you feel right at home from day one and that's hard to find in a city like this.
I stayed there with my girlfriend. The location is safe, convenient, only several blocks to the N Q metro. Mr. Balk is a nice person. He gave us a few good suggestions.
Intelligent funny charming host ! Beautiful room, same as last time , so quiet... near the train ; I like Astoria ;friendly, safe, quick train to (email hidden)eal place...
I stayed in Ozkan's room for a 2 weeks. Everything was great! Room is big, clean and well furnitured. Ozkan is a cool guy, very friendly and helpful. Nice to talk with him. The location itself is great and calm. 30 minutes from front door to Midtown. I would recommend to stay in Ozkan!
The place was cozy and clean and suitable for the few days stay. The kitchen is big with all the necessary amenities and the bathroom and kitchen are both clean. Ozkan was very friendly, accommodative and flexible.
Great place for short stay. Friendly and interesting hosts. Great location close to many shops and restaurants and very convenient to get to the subway.
I would not say it is the most suitable place for longer periods, but for short-term it is much more than you can expect!
I spent 5 weeks in this apartment and I had a fantastic experience. Ozkan and Dora were so helpful and accommodating to me. The room was comfortable and clean with lots of space. The apartment is in a great location and I would definitely come back here if I decided to come back to New York. There are brilliant restaurants and bars which are very reasonable. This place had everything I needed with the best hosts ever! Thanks a million to you both for everything :)
Staying with Ozkan was a delight! We had such a good time and were greeted with warmth and surprise desert on arrival. The room was extremely comfortable and the house was lovely. I would definitely stay there again and was really impressed with how quickly Ozkan replied to our messages and how genuine and friendly he and his partner are!
I stayed with Ozkan last March and stupidly left the review expire. He is a by nice host, if you need anything even if it's not related to the apartment, he will try to help you. The place is very nice, it is at a very good location, you can find anything you want in the same street or within a couple of blocks walking. The area is vibrant, full of places to eat, coffee shops, some bars, grocery stores, pharmacy, you name it. If you want to go to Manhattan, the train station is only 5 min walk away and in 20 min you are in Midtown. The apartment is big enough if you want some privacy. Rooms are cozy and a good size for a NY place. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Ozkan and Dorota are an inspiring couple, young, cute, kind and fun. They know how to make you feel at home. Their place is very clean and warm. Ozkan's creative skills make it look colourful or classy depending on his mood. Ozkan knows the city very well and is always ready to give good tips. Go meet them, it's really worth. Thank you for your warm attitude both of you.
If you are like most NYers; your looking for a safe, accessible neighborhood within a stone throw of manhattan! With everything in a 10 minute walk or a train stop away to the NQR lines (movie theater, museum, pet stores, any bank branch, Queens library) with various food cultures & parks. Ozkan and Dorota are valued friends that are not only warm, convivial & genuine but they have a personal touch to hospitality that is truly second to none. I have lived in almost every borough in the city & my consensus is that if you need convenience, security, privacy & trust; then Ozkan & Dorota should be first on your list!
I lived with Ozkan about 2 years ago, and we still connect with each other from time to time. He is very respectful of other people's living spaces and keeps his apartment very clean. Right on 36th street and 30th ave in Astoria, I can remember one weekend morning waking up and a street fair was going on right outside the window. It's an exciting (yet quiet) area to live in, and the train is very close by. Ozzy is very knowledgeable about the city itself, and is a great source for networking as well. You'll love your experience trust me.
I stayed with Ozkan and Dorota about 2 months. Wow! Such friendly people and it was an amazing experience. I felt like i am in my own apartment. Everything was clean, quite at nights, warm and such a great, positive energy was surrounding me all the time. Besides the excellence of the environment - the location was incredible. Walking distance to all necessary train stations, restaurants, bars, cafes, grocery stores - so many options!!... It made my life a lot easier. I felt like i am in the middle of new york and surrounded by everything that i possibly need. Next time i plan a trip to new york i know where i will be staying. I recommend Ozkan and Dorota to anyone who wants to stay in a clean ,beautiful place in the middle of everything and meet some cool people.
ozkan was very welcoming and helpful. ozkan's apartment looks exactly like the photos and is very clean and quiet, he was always available on email and the phone to answer questions and help whenever necessary.
I have live in this place for three years already and feeling very happy☺. I am very glad for being here in this house, in this area and in this environment of the neighborhood. I can easily access to anything I have could think of if considering shopping and plan for hang out or dine out. I love this house for its energy and pleasure in living. I am very happy so far with every new person that joins us to live in together, sharing is so easy here of the common areas because the layout is amazingly comfy. The house is space out that makes you to feel sometimes like you are by yourself. In here, you can relax and rest. There is constant update for more functional and comfortable place in use for all tenants, I can guarantee that! I feel I found my safe heaven whenever I am coming back home.
I'm living with Oskan and his wife Dorota for one month, they are really respectful and friendly. The house is very very clean and the room is big and comfortable, you also have a big roof you can go to take sun. The apartment is like 5 minutes walking to the subway and it takes you 20 minutes to be in the center of Manhattan which is really good. I would highly recommend to stay here during your time in NYC.
I have lived with Ozkan and his wife Dorota for 6 months. I can honestly say they were very good hosts, very friendly and considerate. They are clean and keep to themselves, but are also friendly and love to hang out. I would honestly recommend them to anyone looking for a clean, friendly environment during your NYC stay.
